Russia/Ukraine War: ‘Nigeria Must Bridge Gap to Avoid Food Crisis’
Written by Olarotimi Oshin on March 25, 2022
A Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) known as OXFAM Nigeria, has decried the war between Russia and Ukraine, saying that if something is not done to abate the situation, it might cause a devastating food crisis.
The organisation stated that governments must support the development of sustainable, resilient and local food systems, based on small-scale production and family farming that would form the very foundation of people’s food security as the current crisis underscores the urgency and importance of this.
This is contained in a press release by the Oxfam International Country Director in Nigeria, Dr. Vincent Ahonsi, and signed by Ms. Rita Abiodun, which was made available to newsmen.
